Amiibo is a subject that is close to some people's hearts. They find joy in being able to collect these little figurines, even as they go up to exorbitant price levels. So, why not participate and have a small recollection of a piece of GBAtemp history, by earning a new collector's item that is still extremely worthy of that three inches of your shelf space, and earn your chance to get an exclusive GBAtemp Amiibo, which we have christened as Tempiibo! Clever, right?!

Attached below, we have a specs sheet from our friends at the printing factory! Unfortunately, our folks at the designing factory are having a small issue with a design cue at present, so we can only present a mockup image at this time! They told us though that the problem should be ironed out, very soon!

With all the mumbo jumbo out of the way, what does that mean, and more importantly, when are you guys going to be allowed to order one? Unfortunately, the answer to that question is to be determined - we're quite hard at work negotiating with distributors and a retail chain or two to see if we can sell the product in stores; we're going to make this available to a decently sized audience if possible, but at the same time not let it become a bit of a fiasco like some of the other Amiibo that are flying off of shelves. The bottom line is we still want this to be an enjoyable community thing, too! We'll provide more information as time comes, but the announcement is too good to keep back anymore! At this point, we would like to ask you guys to stay tuned, and get hyped, because a new collectable is on its way, and being members you guys will have early access to this!

Well here's an interesting app development on Xbox One.

Rosetta Stone, popular language learning software giant, has just announced an App that has already been released on the Xbox One, designed to help teach you basic English and Spanish!


This is really interesting App development that I would love to see taken further in the future! It'll be especially comprehensive if it takes advantage of the Kinect to recognize dialect and pronunciation.

I'll be demo'ing it out sometime in the future, I'll let you know if I need to take a college Spanish course or not:P
